Helen Thomas Died

Post by Logg » Sat Jul 20, 2013 4:48 pm

Helen Thomas, the celebrated (or reviled) longtime White House correspondent died.

Her last years were marred by an act of controversy, when she was recorded saying that "the Jews should get the hell out of Palestine" and go home to Poland, Germany, etc.

She resigned after that, which seemed like overkill to me. But, as I speculated at the time, maybe it was the expedient thing to do considering her advanced age and the potential illnesses associated with it.

Sadly, Thomas, who was of Lebanese origin, doubled down on the paranoid sounding Zionist conspiracy talk in a subsequent interview in Playboy.

But before its unceremonious ending, Thomas' career was longstanding and fairly legendary. Once again, the IP conflict claims a victim.
